Philadelphia Phillies (52-62) at Miami Marlins (52-63)

Cole Hamels (12-6, 3.08) vs. Nathan Eovaldi (3-7, 4.33)

TIME: 7:10, Marlins Park
Weather: Lower 80′s, mostly cloudy
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Cole Hamels is coming off a complete game shutout against the Braves last Tuesday, and would love to have similar results tonight against the Marlins, a team that he has a 5.21 ERA against this year. The Phillies as a team have lost five in a row to the Marlins, the most they’ve lost to them since 2004.

But the Phillies have been playing decent baseball since the All-Star break, and the legendary (joking) Erik Kratz is filling in nicely for injured Carlos Ruiz. Things are looking not-to-shabby for the Phils, and this series could launch them away from the basement of the NL East for good, or do the opposite.

Lineup: Rollins SS, Pierre LF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Brown RF, Mayberry CF, Frandsen 3B, Kratz C, Hamels P

Allagash White
Your Gameday Beer – Allagash White
This is a really good beer that is fortunately becoming more widely available around the country. The White name lets you know it’s a Witbier – way better than the more ubiquitous Blue Moon or Hoegaarden. It has citrus wheat flavors along with some strong fall scents like pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg which make it a great late summer ale. It is refreshing and smooth and very enjoyable to drink. It pairs well with a sweet chicken dish like Hawaiian or teriyaki style. – By Brian
